The time before that when he played here was the same night Phil was in town, I think it was July of 2000, if you had a Phil ticket stub you got in free if you came over after the show, but after a night full of Dylan and Phil, I was spent. For some reason he's just had bad timing when he played here, which is a shame, I'd love to see him back.
He has played local tributefest "Schwagstock" a couple of times (held on some 400 acres of private land located in VERY rural Southern Missouri, the law gets most of it's budget from arrests made surrounding the events), a friend of mine just recently uploaded his recording of Gans' two sets that he did there about 2 weeks ago. That place is notorious for roadblocks and profiling, I've known way too many people get caught up going down and/or coming back from there. Though I'm guessing Gans' police incident probably stemmed from his days with the Dead.
At any rate, my answer is "no." I don't go around advertising my Deadheadness like I did when I was younger. Which is odd, as now I also never have anything to worry about when I drive, unlike when I was younger...
